2:48 PM ET: Streak Leader Speaks, StreakMaster Doesn't Have Fans?
I reached out to our leader, Fargonauts to see what is going through his mind as he is only 6 wins away from a life changing amount of money. Here is what he had to say:

"I am a HUGE sports fan and I tend to follow college sports more regularly. My favorite team is the Iowa Hawkeyes since I received my bachelors and MBA degrees from there. I am a life long fan and have had football and basketball season tickets for many years. As I get closer to #25, I am starting to feel more and more pressure which I feel is a good thing. However, last night was excruciating as the game was in doubt until the final pitch. The reality is that we are talking about a potentially life changing amount of money. However, I certainly have to keep things in perspective and reminding myself that the goal is still a ways off. Until I get to #20, I can't really worry about #25 and what that may bring with it. It's a lot of fun and it is definitely exciting and I hope to continue as long as possible."

It seems like Fargonauts has a good head on his shoulders although, I don't think he is "feeling good" about the pressure as he moves closer to the magic number. I mean if you were 6 picks away from 1 million dollars, wouldn't you be a going over every possible stat for every matchup on the board while pacing back and forth in your office for hours? I know for a fact he is more nervous then Sergio Garcia on every 18th hole.

Oh, and another thing. 3 fans of the StreakMaster on Facebook? Really? Where are my fans? Is there anyone out there? Throw me a bone here!

Today's Preview
Today marks the second day of group play in the UEFA Champions League. At 2:30 p.m. Manchester United takes on Villarreal at Old Trafford in what should be Cristiano Ronlado's first match of the season even though he is projected to come off the bench. Man U is favored by a good amount so we decided to provide a goals prop. The over/under made by Vegas in 2.5 total goals, therefore each side is split 50/50 in our matchup. Another fan favorite, Arsenal hits the pitch at 2:30 on the road against Dynamo Kiev. Arsenal is favored to win outright on the road but only by a slim margin. The final regular season meeting between the Rays and Red Sox takes place tonight at the Trop. The Rays are favored to win with the line at -128, and with first place on the line again, tempers could fly. Other MLB lines: Mets -118, Cubs -119 and Rangers -134.


Wednesday Night Football: Kansas State (2-0) at Louisville (1-1)
The Wildcats head to Cardinal country trying to keep their undefeated record intact. Kansas State is favored to win the game by 4 and I am surprised it is not by more. Louisville is at home but the Big 12 is very strong this year and I'd take Kansas State in this one.

Yesterday's Notes:
Wow, what a game last night! The Phillies and Braves had a instant classic, which came down to Atlanta's final at-bat. The Braves had the bases loaded with two outs but failed to get a run home, which gave Philly and our leader the win. Fargonauts is now at 19 wins in a row, and if I was nervous during this game I can only imagine how he was. The overall winning PCT was a decent 54.1%.
